One of the fun exhibits at this year's Chicago Auto Show is the State Farm Safe Drive Simulator.

"State Farm wanted to kind of showcase our Drive Safe and Save app," said State Farm agent Steve Gardner. "We wanted it to be fun for the customers so we turned it into like a fun video game just really based on you safe driving habits, driving slow through school zones, not speeding, braking, looking for oncoming traffic. Based on how you drive, customers can get up to 30 percent discount on their auto insurance."

And for a little nostalgia, check out the Lost Corvette Collection 36 classic 'Vettes from 1953 to 1989 that were once owned by legendary pop-artist Peter Max, who bought them from the winner of a VH1 giveaway in 1989. He was going to paint them and auction them off, but instead they laid dormant in a series of New York City parking garages for over 20 years!

"So now with the help of the Corvette Heroes we are restoring these cars, bringing them back to life and then we're going to give them away all over again," said Corvette Heroes product specialist Katherine Connors.
